A famous company is offering customers the chance to win half of a million dollars by winning a new contest.

The maker of one of America's most famous cookies, Oreo, is holding an awesome new contest. 

In addition to the prize money, the winner will also see his or her creation on store shelves and get a trip to New York City for "unprecedented VIP access" to check out "never-before-released Oreo creations," and top-secret prototypes, in the "Wonder Vault." Even the runners-up will get $25,000 each, a spokesperson told TODAY Food. The winner will be decided based on "fan voting."

The latest flavor to grace the Oreo label is "Fireworks" and contains red and blue sparkly popping ingredients, like pop rocks. 

According to Today.com, "Now’s the chance to share the flavor you’ve been waiting for. Or a combo of flavors! Or, it could be a flavor inspired by a moment in your own life. Or what about the flavors of your favorite holiday? What would those taste like in an Oreo creation?"

According to Chewboom.com, fans in the US can submit one unique submission per person per day on Instagram or Twitter by uploading a photo, video or just copy and including the hashtags #MyOreoCreation #Contest.

The three finalists will be chosen using the following criteria:

  • Taste Appeal (40%) – be delicious and/or evoke a feeling of joy/deliciousness.
  • Creativity (30%) – be a smart/creative design and have a relevant theme to inspire a 2018 Oreo creation.
  • Originality (30%) – be unique and evoke a taste, feeling or remind you of an experience that would inspire an Oreo cookie creation.

In the event of a tie, the submission with the highest “Taste Appeal” score will be deemed a finalist. Fans can enter between now and July 14, 2017.
